“Stay somewhere else”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Hotel is not in good shape. Also loud drunk people hanging around the parking lot with boom boxes did not give us a very secure feeling. When we were checking in I overheard another customer complaining about the strong scent of marijuana leaking into her room from the adjoining rooms. I would advise staying elsewhere.

If I could sum up our stay in one word, it would be: YUCK! We picked this hotel because it was "dog friendly" and needed a place to stay while visiting Crystal River before going on the manatee tour. The room we were given smelled heavily of cat pee and looked nothing like the pictures found online. We would have left if another hotel had been available.

The hotel promised us a late checkout of 12:30 in order to give us time to return from the manatee tour. We were assured that the cleaning staff would not come into our room, as our biggest concern was that our dog would accidentally be let out. (The rooms open to the outside.) When we returned at 11:30, the cleaning crew was preparing to enter our room.

If you are looking for a cheap place to stay and don't mind a "seedy" vibe, then this place will suffice. For us, we'll look elsewhere next time.

We stayed here over this past weekend for scalloping season. The room looked clean but still felt dirty and smelled of smoke. I would never stay at a place like this again but it was tolerable because of the marina right behind the 'motel'.

We stayed here when doing the manatee tour and were very pleased with the friendly check-in.
It is a very descent place with a clean room. Had a good night rest. We even could check out late after returning from our manatee tour. That's what I call service!

We stayed here for 3 nights on the way to the Florida Keys. We had booked a manatee tour and needed an extended check out time. The tour ended at 11 and we had until 12:30 to go back and change/check out. The rooms were clean, staff was friendly, the pool was nice and there is a Denny's next door. The location is great, just a few minutes from where we needed to be. I would stay here again.

We stayed here to do the Manatee tour as we received a discounted price by buying the stay with the tour. Place was decent enough. We didn't spend much time there but room was clean and had no frills.

Onsite Bar was cool but was definitely locals and not very busy. :)

Although the motel is older and therefore needs tender loving care, it is clean, friendly and affordable. The rooms for customers with pets are in one wing so that dogs can actually meet our in their own little 'park' area which is clean and well groomed. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It is a great 'one stop stay' because you can get food at Denny's; drink and socialize in the bar and get a good night's sleep on the comfy beds. Pets are welcomed and treated nicely. It is a well maintained property that demonstrates pride of ownership.

Room Tip: request a room on the west side, away from the road and the restaurant/bar area
